Will the Amd pro 450 run cooler and quieter than the 460?

    I don't know too much about graphics cards but I read that both cards have a tdp of 35w. So does that mean we should expect them both to run at the same heat and fan noise? Or would the 450 be cooler and quieter since it's much weaker

    Unfortunately you'll just have to wait until people can test them the same as everyone else.

    We could give you a load of technical bull and talk about TDP and GPU compute workloads etc but we won't know anything until people have them in their grubby little paws to play around with

    i think its a posibility, this is what im waiting for since we dont have a iGPU only...for me heat and battery are big reasons not to pick the 460 or to pick it

    Logically speaking, yes. I wouldn't be thinking hours though (unless maybe at high load for a pro-longed period of time?)

    The 450 will most likely consume less power under load, yes.

    My estimated delivery date is December 9-15th so hopefully by then we'll know and I can change my order if needed

    But that for 460 should I seem to deliver about performance relative to the 450 or previous generation GPUs
